Sucks about having to squeeze back in there...Haha I'm not a big guy, if I were close I'd help ya out

Thanks for the reply

As for swapping it out with another one, it's not necessarily going to be that easy. I found the starter on Amazon for about 1/3rd the price of what Advance Auto quoted me for. It also had free shipping. Too good to be true? Who knows... but it had 9 positive reviews. Seems lately that more and more of my lousy paychecks are going towards replacing something else on the Jeep--and most of the time it's not even an upgrade, it's just replacing something OE that fails. lol!

The starter has a warranty behind the good reviews, but it would certainly not be ideal to have to ship it back and wait for another one. I kept the old starter, and in a pinch I guess I could put it back in, but it's my daily.

I watched several videos of starter/flywheel grinding on Youtube and I'm pretty convinced it just needs shims. I guess starters are moderately universal between quite a few vehicles and sometimes the aftermarket starters aren't perfectly OE specs. It's not ideal, but it saved me a hundred bucks.

What outboard brackets are those?

That was my second choice.

Just going from memory, but isn't it a plate bolted to the skid with 4 7mm bolts or something like that

Looks like clean job. You are one brave SOB welding while under the rig so close to your tire like that.
